LECTURE • October 2, 18.00-19.00
Title: Embrace the Past!
Speaker: Hélène Bremer
About: Like all artists are standing on the shoulders of their predecessors, all historic houses are formed by generations of occupants. These occupants shaped and changed the look of the house over the centuries. Bringing contemporary artists in a historic house is a way for a curator to tell the story of continuity. Curating that engages with the past and links it with the present can give a place a new lease of life.
Konstfack arranged in collaboration with Iaspis, The Swedish Arts Grants Committee ́s international programme for Visual and Applied Artists.
Address: LM Ericssons väg 14, Stockholm, in the Mandelgren room

OPENING & EXHIBITION • October 4, 11.00-17.00
About: Masterstudents from CRAFT! activate surprising collaborations co/ Uglycute. The students at Konstfack/CRAFT! work, as part of their education, making things by hand. What happens if an element of ephemerality is added to our practices? In this one day only pop-up exhibition you will experince ugly, burnt, cute and sweet works of art that may or may not be edible.
Address: Uglycute, Kvarngatan 14, Stockholm
